Great weekend for Augsburg last week as they won their third straight league game against Wolfsburg. Koo Ja-Cheol played a full 90 minutes again. Augsburg is in great form right now as Koo is a vital player for Augsburg he should start against Cologne this week.
Ji Dong-Won returns from injury after being out for a couple of weeks. He made his league return last week but only played for a few minutes as he was subbed on at minute 88. He should make bench this week against Cologne.
Hong Jeong-Ho has been getting the bench treatment these last couple of weeks. I don’t know why but he was subbed in at minute 40 last week against Wolfsburg. Hopefully he starts this week against Cologne. Aim for a fourth straight win Augsburg.
Park Joo-Ho was excluded from the squad list last week against Stuttgart. I expect him to at least make bench this week against Wolfsburg. Park should start reconsidering his future at Borussia Dortmund as he hasn’t been getting decent league playing time.
Good news, looks like Kim Jin-Su has recovered from his thigh injury. He has now recovered and joined team training again. If he is ready he should make bench this week against Ingolstadt.
Lee Chung-Yong was excluded from the squad list against Watford for his poor performance against Manchester United. I expect him to either be excluded from the squad list or make bench. Lee said in a recent interview he is going to think hard about his future with the club. Maybe he will make a move soon.
Suk Hyun-Jun was an unused sub last week. I expect him to make bench again this week. It’s been a while too since Suk got some decent league playing time.
Ki Sung-Yueng was a sub last week and came in at minute 76 against Leicester City. He should make bench this week against Liverpool.
Son Heung-Min has been getting some ridiculous league playing time he is always getting subbed on at injury time or around minute 85. He should make bench against Chelsea. Hopefully he impresses when he gets subbed on.
If you want a break from European football this is the match to watch this weekend. Super Match is the biggest and best derby is Korea. Suwon Samsung vs FC Seoul. Kick off is at 3PM Korean time. Yeom Ki-Hun Santos Kwon Chang-Hoon vs Adriano Dejan and Park Chu-Young.
